The Shirt That Almost Didn't Happen

Burda World of Fashion 3/2009
Blouse 106 A
This is the original from the magazine that she is wearing (version B). Mine is a little shorter (version A) my torso is not as long and this version would have went over my hips and the patern is fitted so there would be no give to move around.
Well, the shirt started off great then I realized that I had sewn a sleeve on the wrong way and the collar just did not want to work the way it should. I had to have some convincing that the shirt needed to be finished. In the end I am very glad that I did finish it, it fits great and looks really good.

Your shirt looks great. I bought my first Burda magazine, just for that pattern, but now I'm too scared to start it, lol!
